FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Happy Monday!

We're off to a wet start this morning, with showers and thunderstorms moving through the area. The heavier rain and storms really start to wrap up this morning, then we'll just see a few scattered showers and pop-up storms on the back end off all of this, for the most part tapering by this afternoon. Good news for us, we are not expecting severe potential with these storms, mostly due to the timing being overnight and with the loss of daytime heating. On the backend, high pressure builds in and we'll see clearing clouds and dry conditions. Highs top out in the low to mid 70s.

Dry air continues through Tuesday, when we'll see mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s. This will be one of the better days of the week.

As we head into Wednesday, we'll start off with a few showers during the earlier part of the day, then storms move in by afternoon. Daytime highs top out in the low 70s on Wednesday.

Showers and storms continue throughout the day on Thursday, with highs topping out in the upper 70s. We'll be keeping an eye on this timeframe for any severe potential as it approaches.

We end the workweek with highs well into the upper 80s on Friday and mostly sunny conditions, with our next round of rain approaching overnight as we kick off the first of the weekend.

Colonial Village: Can troubled Columbus property be turned around?

News Channel 4 - Mon, 05/16/2022 - 03:30

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) -- From the exterior, not much has changed at Colonial Village since it came into a new developer's hands in March. There are still boarded-up properties and trash, and the grass needs to be mowed.

But changes are going on behind the scenes at the east Columbus property on Rand Avenue that occupies 34 parcels and 96 buildings.

Receivership in the hands of developer Robert J. Weiler Sr. heralded positive changes for residents, City Attorney Zach Klein said at the time: "Residents have suffered far too long, and now, help is here.”

NBC4 attempts a tour of Colonial Village

NBC4 made repeated requests since March 29 through the City Attorney's office, and through the attorney for Weiler, to visit the property of 508 units.

Weiler has shown 30 parties of interested buyers through the property with more scheduled, according to his report to the court.

Biggest sources of immigrants to Ohio

During an unannounced visit by NBC4, multiple people who wanted to speak were intercepted by the property manager or security. Several residents did speak, though, all under the condition of anonymity.

N Forcers hired to secure Colonial Village

N Forcers began on site March 14, hired by the developer. It provides basic security, removes inoperable vehicles, identifies new vacancies in the units and checks out signs of break-ins to boarded units, court documents show.

One resident said they felt safer at Colonial Village because a lot of the problem tenants have moved out. Another said they didn't feel safe, that security guards sat outside the rental office chatting rather than patrolling the premises.

Columbus park shootings worry residents

Police reports for cruiser district 91, which includes Colonial Village, for April show no crimes reported there.

This is a massive improvement to a property plagued by crime. In its complaint against previous owner Apex Colonial, the City of Columbus said police visited the property over 4,000 times, 500 for violent incidences in 18 months from Jan. 2018 to June 2019.

Maintenance woes

The most consistent complaint was about the maintenance. A couple of people said there was only one maintenance person.

Court documents show it's been difficult to retain maintenance staff. According to the First Report of Receiver filed in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas:

"As of approximately 30 days into the receivership, the maintenance staff consisted of five members, including a supervisor, lead technician, two general technicians, and a grounds worker.

"Each of them worked 40 hours per week, with at least one person on call to cover emergency matters during weekends and off hours. Unfortunately, after it became clear that they would need to engage in hard work at the Property, the maintenance supervisor and a technician quit their employment."

Hayes Gibson, the company in charge of managing the property, has been interviewing replacements and hiring temporary staff, court records show.

Roaches, rodents, bed bugs

Six weeks is a short time to make fixes. The receiver's report to the court verified "interior units suffer from a variety of ailments, including: bed bugs, rodent infestation, roach infestation, water damage, holes/cracks in ceilings and walls, non-functional heat or air, broken doors and windows, broken locks, floor damage, and missing life and safety equipment."

The exterior is also in bad shape, with broken windows, bare and rotted wood, and other maintenance problems.

Support for Ukraine in full force at Dublin rally

One resident, who said his previous home was a storage unit, was happy to live at Colonial Village. Many residents come from Community Shelter Board and Columbus Metropolitan Housing Association's Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Problems with prior owner Apex Colonial

Apex Colonial owed $800,000 to the City of Columbus for public utilities that resulted in shutoff notices to tenants for electricity, water, and sewer services, court documents show.

Weiler also said that Apex Colonial did not produce a single document directly to the receiver at the time of the report, and hampered access to the rental manager for rental software and files.

"Even the rent roll has proven to be unreliable," the receiver said in court documents, describing the "painstaking process of updating the rent roll. They contacted tenants to determine their status, visited various units, engaged the help of security personnel to identify vacant units, and took other steps to obtain an accurate roll of tenants."

In addition, the school board wants more than $36 million in back taxes.

The flip

No doubt the developer has come into a challenging property at Colonial Village and has been asked to create an enormous number of improvements.

The remit of the receiver, according to court documents, is "to take control of and manage the Property, prepare it for a sale, and ultimately sell the Property free and clear of all claims, liens, and
encumbrances."

Ruff love: 1 in 3 would choose their pet over their house or spouse!

Ohio Revised Code 2735.04 allows the developer to "maximize the return from the property to the receivership estate, taking into account the potential cost of holding and operating the property."

Weiler's job is to get Colonial Village into shape to sell, and maximize return.

Selling Colonial Village

Given the appetite for selling the property, how will the people of Colonial Village know that help has actually arrived?

The receiver's order gives a timeline for fixing the code violations, employing staff and security, inspecting units, and interviewing potential buyers.

Part of qualifying to bid on the property will be a meeting with the city to discuss Colonial Village and the buyer's plans for the property.

The eventual buyer for Colonial Village will need a business plan, the commitment to provide tenant-assistance services and affordable housing, plus front-office staff, maintenance, and security, according to the Motion of Receiver for Approval of Sale Procedures.

Arrest warrant filed in fatal north Columbus shooting from February

News Channel 4 - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 19:16

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) -- An arrest warrant has been filed against a suspect for the fatal shooting of a woman in north Columbus in February of this year.

The warrant has been filed for Dallas W. Lowery, 31, as a suspect in the fatal shooting of Heather Champan, 33, on Feb. 22.

Lowery is currently being held in Delaware County Jail on unrelated charges.

Chapman was discovered on the 1700 block of Melrose Avenue suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Man found dead with gunshot wound inside car on I-71 north

According to court documents, Lowery called police to say Chapman committed suicide. When taken in by police, Lowery allegedly refused to give them a statement.

Court documents state the gun used in Chapman's death was not found at the scene. Police allege Lowery gave the gun to a friend to dispose of it. The gun, police said, was later found with the friend, and the gun matched a shell casing found at the scene.

Through the investigation, Chapman's death was determined to be a homicide.

Chapman's death was the 16th homicide in Columbus for 2022.

Support for Ukraine in full force at Dublin rally

News Channel 4 - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 16:08

DUBLIN, Ohio (WCMH) – Ukraine supporter gathers in Dublin Sunday for the Stand with Ukraine rally.

It’s been nearly three months since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, and since then, families and friends in central Ohio have joined others across the world to do what they can to help the country.

On Sunday, some of those people gathered at Bridge Park in Dublin to continue showing their support.

Know before you donate: BBB offers tips on verifying charities claiming to help Ukraine

Events like Sunday’s rally have been held multiple times since the Russian invasion began on Feb. 24. For many who now call central Ohio home, the message stand with Ukraine means more now than ever.

“It’s hard for us to watch, but we continue to do what we can to raise money, raise awareness, and show everyone this is not a fake war,” said Natalia Lebedin, who has helped organize rallies and fundraisers since the invasion began.

For Marianna Klochko, awareness is everything, like sending letters to elected officials and just keeping the conversation going.

“Talk to your friends and neighbors, and remind them about Ukraine,” Klochko said. “I know people tend to forget or shift their focus.”

And that’s exactly what the rally was held to bring attention to – making sure those who need help get it.

Online donations to the Ukraine War Relief Fund can also be made anytime.

Columbus park shootings worry residents

News Channel 4 - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 16:05

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Saturday night’s shooting at Weinland Park that injured an 8-year-old girl was the fourth shooting at a city park in the last three weeks.

The other shootings happened at Saunders, Nafzger, and Westgate parks.

Police stepping up patrols after fatal Columbus park shootings

And while the scene at Weinland Park was active but calm, some there Sunday said they’re worried about the recent violence at city parks.

Some of those at the park were unaware of Saturday’s shooting but expressed concern once they were told.

Others like Monissa Davidson and her 9-year-old daughter saw the police at the scene Saturday, and while they like going to the park, decided to just walk through it Sunday.

“She was scared, crying that it could have been a friend,” Davidson said. “I’m concerned because you never know when it’ll happen. I was actually telling her we’re just going to go get some books and then back home because I don’t trust it right now.”

Warm end to the weekend ahead of showers & a more seasonal start to the workweek

News Channel 4 - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 04:45
Columbus and Central Ohio Weather QUICK WEATHER FORECAST:
  • This morning: Patchy fog, low 63
  • Today: Morning fog, then mostly sunny and warm, high 86
  • Tonight: Increasing clouds, then rain & t-storms, low 59
  • Monday: AM showers clearing, high 73
  • Tuesday: Mostly sunny, high 72
  • Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, rain later, high 71
  • Thursday: Chance for rain and thunderstorms, high 78
FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Sunday!

Warm weather continues as we wrap up the weekend. This will be ahead of a cold front which will bring back the chance for rain & storms before knocking down temperatures.

Early this morning, we have wet ground and a light wind leading to areas of fog. If you find yourself in an area with low visibility due to fog, remember to turn on your low beam lights, slow down and plan for extra stopping distance between your car & the car in front of you.

After the fog clears, we'll be left with a mostly sunny sky. Thanks to the sunshine and a warmer than normal start to the morning, temperatures will quickly jump to the mid to upper 80s, which is more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.

Overnight as a cold front starts to move in from the west, clouds will increase ahead of the chance for rain & thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will become more widespread by midnight and continue until sunrise Monday. This will lead to a wet morning drive and temperatures in the 60s, which is about 10 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year.

A few showers will linger through the morning and afternoon, but overall we'll start to see clearing as we approach Monday evening thanks to cooler, drier air filling in behind a cold front. Like the name implies, we'll also see cooler temperatures for the start of the week. Monday's high will reach the low to mid 70s, which is right in line with normal for this time of year.

High pressure will move in by Tuesday and bring back in plenty of sunshine. Despite the clear sky, temperatures will stay seasonal and only reach the low to mid 70s.

Another system will lift into the area Wednesday morning. This will bring back the chance for showers Wednesday through the end of the week.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Biggest sources of immigrants to Ohio

News Channel 4 - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 04:30

Nearly 14% of the United States population is composed of immigrants. But in reality, the vast majority of Americans today are here because of relatives who immigrated from other countries some time in the last several hundred years.

And while the distinctive American culture and spirit are the result of blending many diverse cultures and histories, the United States has for centuries had an up-and-down relationship with immigration.

Each era of immigration has been met with reductive ideas and resistance, whether the backlash was directed toward the Chinese, Irish, Italians, or Mexicans. Immigration laws have targeted specific groups at various times, stoking intolerance and preventing people from truly joining American society. Over time, however, as laws changed to be more equitable and immigrants found their footings, we have reaped the rewards of innovation in business, music, art, literature, dance, food, societal norms, entertainment, and sports—all while realizing a greater understanding of and respect for different cultures, religions, and ideas.

Stacker compiled a list of the biggest sources of immigrants to Ohio using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Keep reading to find out more about the immigrant community in your home state.
